The Nasher Sculpture Center is a one of the newer museums to hit the Dallas Arts District but has made a lasting impact on the local scene. The vision of the late Raymond and Patty Nasher, the indoor gallery houses the couple’s collection of some of the finest modern sculptures in the world. With over 300 pieces in the permanent collection, multiple works from artists such as Calder, de Kooning, di Suvero, Giacometti, Hepworth and Picasso are on display. Special exhibits on loan from other museums and collections are also housed here from time to time.
The center was designed by architect Renzo Piano in collaboration with landscape architect Peter Walker, who installed a beautiful sculpture garden to explore outside the indoor gallery space. The site also has an auditorium, a cafe and a store, plus research and educational facilities to promote sculpture.
The Nasher Sculpture Center is located adjacent to the Dallas Museum of Art in the Dallas Arts District. It is open Tuesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and admission costs $10 for adults, $7 for seniors, $5 for students and is free for children under 12. The admission fee covers a free audio tour and entrance to any special exhibitions. Parking at the nearby Dallas Museum of Art is free.
